White Stripes - When I Hear My Name tab

when i hear my name (live under blackpool lights)
the white stripes
under blackpool lights DVD

standard tuning: EADGBE

h=hammer on
p=pull off
s=slide, if there is no number to slide to, it is a quick slide that can be done from anywhere
b=bend, if there is no number to bend to, it is a quick bend up to anywhere between a quarter and a half
r=release bend
v=vibrato

chords:
E5: 022xxx
A5: x022xx
B5: x244xx
G:  320033
A:  x0222x

i assume jack has his electro harmonics big muff switched on from the start
the digitech whammy is used during the solos, set one octave up
it is also possible that jack is playing full open chords instead of powerchords
i think this is where his boss compressor comes into play
(an effect which makes the volume of everything you play the same,
i.e playing a 3 on the low E string would be just as loud as playing the full G major)

the chords are just a guideline as to what jack plays, most of the time
there are muted strums between them (when he sings).
as opposed to the album version, jack doesnt always mute the chord as soon as it
is played or when he starts singing, but instead lets it ring
this is mostly done on the A5 chord
all of this is typical of jack's playing style of keeping riffs
simple so he can do whatever improvisation he wants to

  yeah yeah-a-eh

now he turns on the digitech whammy so what he plays sounds like it's being played an 
(12 frets) higher
just for ease of reference i'll tab it with the whammy and without
(he turns it off for the chords so they stay the same)

unfortunately not possble, the 15s will have to suffice unless you have a huge fretboard
